The Black Swan Hotel was a hotel in Browns, Victoria, <1859-1863>.

Site[edit | edit source]

The Black Swan Hotel was in Browns.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Sarah Parker had an interest in both the Black Swan Hotels at Browns and the hotel at Linton. In September 1862 she advertised for someone to paint and paper the Linton hotel. Tenders for the work could be left at either business.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

In June 1859 the license was issued with a caution to the publican about the way the hotel was conducted. Unfortunately most of the newspaper column is illegible, however it does indicate that a man was fighting for his life after a row originating in the hotel.[3]


Community Involvement[edit | edit source]

  • In September 1859 a series of community balls and supper was commenced:

GRAND BALLS. - To-night the first of a series of balls and suppers to be held monthly is to take place at Abbott's Hotel, and on Tuesday fortnight, a grand carnival and masked ball will be held at the Black Swan Hotel, Brown's, under the stewardship of Dr Saenger, Mr Kennedy, and other gentlemen at Brown's.[4]
